“Perfect romantic getaway”
Reviewed 18 February 2017 for a stay in February 2017

people found this review helpful

This is a beautiful, comfortable, clean cabin, perfect for a couple wanting to re-charge and get to know each other again.
Pros:
Comfortable bed and furniture (leather couch and recliners)
Nice hot-tub - perfect for two
Big shower with ceiling-mounted and hand held shower heads
BBQ pit for grilling (used it several times)
Beautiful gas fireplace
Nice TV's
WiFi (not super-fast, but better than nothing).
Large windows and wrap-around deck provide a nice view

Cons:
BEWARE OF THE DRIVE!! The roads and driveways are EXTREMELY steep (we're used to mountain roads in California) - our rental sedan had trouble even on dry, perfect conditions! If you arrive at night having never driven these roads before, it WILL BE quite harrowing.

The water pressure from the ceiling-mounted showerhead is too high - it feels like your skin has been sand-blasted!). The bars of soap provided are very skimpy - might want to bring your own.

The provided kitchen cookware is pretty lousy, so don't try to get too fancy in the kitchen!

Thank you for your comments. Secret Hideaway is that perfect getaway for privacy and romance. Tucked away in the mountains that many guests are looking for to get away to. Our mountains are a bit different from the west coast of California, but not so bad once you have taken the drive once, it is easy to become familiar with. Then once you arrive to the cabin, guests always say that it was part of the adventure and thrill of staying in the mountains. First hearing about the water pressure, this can be adjusted. With wells, it is generally that the water pressure can be too low, so better that it is higher pressure which can be adjusted, thank you for bringing this to our attention. It may be time to replace pots and pans here and there also to keep up to date. The owner of this cabin had put many upgrades and redecorated the cabin within the past year, so newer cookware may be next on the list. Thank you for coming to Secret Hideaway, overall it sounds like you enjoyed your stay and hope to see you again soon! Secret Hideaway is a beautiful, clean and modern cabin that guests keep coming back to over and over.

My husband and I chose to honeymoon in Gatlinburg and this cabin was absolutely what we were imagining when deciding where to stay. When we arrived at Secret Hideaway we were overwhelmed by the beautiful cabin and scenic views! We will definetly come back and would recommend others to do the same!

Great, comfortable cabin located near Gatlinburg. It's very quiet and relaxing. Perfect for a long weekend. Many comforts of home with a fairly well equipped kitchen that even had wine glasses. The cabin could use more towels and replace the ones that are showing too many signs of aging. But, everything else was top notch.
